Local pickleball club expanding interest in sport

Published May 31, 2015 -

A new sport club is helping to spread the interest of pickleball throughout Rome, Floyd County and Northwest Georgia.

Pickleball is the fastest growing sport in America, according to Bob Hood, the president of the newly formed Coosa Valley Pickleball Club.

Pickleball is described as a combination of tennis, ping-pong, and badminton that uses oversized wooden paddles and wiffle ball. While the court is a similar setup to tennis, the court is smaller and the net is slightly lower.

The Coosa Valley Pickleball Club was formed a few months ago and currently has over 30 members ranging from eight years old to 81.
